Episode Summary

EDIT
Touching the Moon
AIRED:
When Leona and Lionel sleep outside late one night, Leona gets to wondering about the moon and what its made of. She heads inside the Barnaby B. Busterfield III Public Library in the hopes of finding a book that will teach her more about the moon. She finds a book and Theo and Cleo find her, wondering what she and Lionel are doing out of bed. Leona shows them the story and Cleo agrees to read it to her. The story is The Queen Who Wanted to Touch the Moon, a Caribbean folktale by Hootie Kaboodle (actually an original story, written for the program by the show's writers.) The story features a queen whose desire to literally touch the moon turns out to be her downfall. Cleo thinks there's important lesson to be learned from the story, but Leona dislikes the story and wishes for an alternate ending. Segments throughout the episode focus on words featuring the double-o "oo" sound.moreless
